U.S. actress Evan Rachel Wood has posted a letter on Twitter revealing that she's been raped twice in the past. The note follows a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine in which the star reportedly talked about her suicide attempt at age 22 and being subjected to "physical, psychological, sexual" abuse. Wood tweeted that "since everything is out in the open, figured I would share the confession letter". In the note, Wood said she had been raped "by a significant other while we were together. And on a separate occasion, by the owner of a bar". She said that the attacks happened "many, many years ago". 29-year-old Wood is known for her roles in "Thirteen", and current HBO series "Westworld". Since posting the confession, the actress has tweeted that she's planning to take a break from social media.
